Legal Southwest Ltd

This firm has several offices across the Devon area, offering an extensive legal service to businesses and individuals both locally and nationally.  They are recognised as the leading law firm for several niche sectors and acting for trade associations puts them at the cutting edge of legal developments affecting those businesses.

We are seeking an experienced Housing Litigation Lawyer to join their well-respected and fast paced Housing Management team.

Clients of this firm enjoy working closely with their lawyers as they resolve disputes.  This position has arisen in the Housing Management side of the team. This team deals with everything to do with managing client’s housing stock and their tenants’ conduct. Principally this involves dealing with disrepair claims, access injunctions, anti-social behaviour injunctions, breach of tenancy injunctions, possession claims, property and land disputes including adverse possession and boundary disputes, and leasehold disputes.

Members of the team regularly appear before County Courts and the Property Tribunal.

There would be an opportunity to conduct your own advocacy (at least through directions and case management hearings) as well as provide ad-hoc advice to clients.

Additionally, there will be direct client contact outside of a case setting through the delivery of targeted training to clients, information to clients through newsletters and managing client relationships.

You will have 4+ years litigation experience and a practical, proactive approach.  In addition, you will need to be an effective communicator ensuring that all clients have the information they need.

Experience gained from a similar sector will be an advantage.

Our client believes that their people are our most important asset, and are committed to supporting their teams, cultivating a healthy culture of challenge and expectation with support and care. They invest in their teams and their infrastructure to ensure that they attract and retain talented staff, and are committed to giving all colleagues the opportunity to reach their full potential, with a real focus on training and development.
